Natasha Galloway, the owner of BB Fly Trucking, had big plans for a $30,000 grant that she received in September. She intended to use the money to pay off her truck, purchase a trailer and invest in commercial property. However, things took a turn for the worse when she encountered problems accessing the grant funds.
Galloway was overjoyed when she received the good news of winning the grant via email on September 29th. She eagerly waited for her check and finally received it on October 25th. Excited to put the money to use, she took it to her local Regions Bank branch. However, when she tried to access the funds, the bank told her that the check was suspicious. They promptly froze her entire business account and began a three-month investigation.
Despite Regions Bank’s confirmation of Galloway as a grant recipient and verification of the check’s legitimacy with The Greater Houston Community Foundation, she is still unable to access any of the funds in her account. As a result, Galloway was unable to pay off her truck and it was repossessed and sent to auction.
Galloway expressed her frustration and disappointment with Regions Bank’s handling of her situation. She had big plans for the grant money that would have greatly benefited her business. In response, Regions Bank stated that they cannot discuss clients’ banking information but are looking into their investigation further.
